PET Sheet Extrusion Line
For PET sheet/film production, we go direct. The conventional pre-drying procedure has been completely removed from the whole process. Either 100% rPET pellets or flakes or virgin, or a mixture of them, our system can easily handle it.
This line produces PET sheets for formed packaging of a huge range of items such as toys, stationery, paneling, logo plates, arts and crafts, water treatment products, printed packaging, and packaging for pharmaceutical and food containers.
The Applications of PET Sheet Extruder Line
PET – Thermoforming Sheets, Blister packaging films, Folded packaging, Lamination for Form Fill Seal(FFS), Value Added Packaging, Labels and Decals, Toy Box, Stationery Cases, Tools & Hardware Packaging
PLA’s Packing material in Microwave Ovens

The advantages of Pet Sheet Extrusion Line
- Pre-drying-free technology
- A high efficient vacuum system keeps IV drop minor
- Optimized screw design avoids yellowing
- More user-friendly and intelligent closed-loop control
We developed a new extrusion line for the production of three-layer thermoforming sheets from virgin and regrind poly(ethylene terephthalate) (PET) material that eliminates the need of pre-drying. The new line includes two corotating twin-screw extruders that are equipped with special degassing units. The first twin-screw extruder allows the production of the core layer from regrind PET materials while the second one produces the two outer layers from virgin PET materials. The resulting sheets are highly transparent and can be subsequently thermoformed to produce packaging such as blisters. Moreover such a thermoforming sheet line offers important raw material cost saving as well as lower energy consumption compared with conventional systems.
In recent years the demand for using PET bottle waste to produce also thermoformed sheet has been growing steadily. Several technologies were applied, all of them trying to avoid drying of flakes (with relative high costs) before being fed to the extruder. In order to keep manufacturing costs down, we use a twin screw extruder with vacuum degassing.
The sheet thus obtained guarantees high quality, with a minimum loss of I.V. measured in the extruded sheet in relation to initial waste values. It is well known how strongly moisture influences the intrinsic viscosity of the PET product to be later thermoformed.
Such moisture can be thoroughly eliminated by means of a very efficient vacuum system equipped with a high performance special pump. The use of the sheet for food packaging requires that only virgin material may be in contact with foodstuffs.
Therefore the central extruder, fed with flakes, is complemented by a co-extruder to be fed with virgin material. This allows the production of a multi-foil sheet A-B-A in a 5-90-5% ratio, respectively.
PET sheet is traditional plastic package material; it has high transparency, there is no ripple, crystal and the white creases after folding the surface. It remains good performance for oil and chemical resistance, high toughness and strength, good impact resistance. This product is widely used after thermo forming for cosmetics, food, toys, folding boxes and printing etc.
Nowadays people are looking for more and more high capacity machines, GWELL has new type of PET sheet line with maximal output 1500kg/h, thickness from 0.2-1.2mm, width maximal 1800mm,
The new type of PET sheet line now are used in Hungary, Jordan, Germany, and America.
